The torturous dry-skin disease causes intense itching and sleeplessness, and sometimes parents try making dietary changes in addition or in place of conventional treatments.

Restricting or eliminating common foods from the diet, meanwhile, is often unnecessary and can pose a nutritional risk, according to a recent study in The Journal of Pediatrics. More

"We're going to proclaim that ties are dead," said Dean Morrell, one of the study's authors and director of pediatric and adolescent dermatology at the University of North Carolina. Morrell and his colleagues surveyed 176 new patients at an adult dermatology clinic and the parents of 248 children attending a pediatric clinic on their views of what doctors should wear. More
